This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Pi mentions a few friends in Pondicherry, but they are all boys. He is shown watching a girl and she gives him a red string to wear around his wrist before he goes to Canada.
   When Pi discovers that the boat is sinking he tries to return to the lower decks but sees that it is underwater. He goes back up to find some crew to help. He sees the water and dives in to try and swim down to help his family.
   Pi sees a Gaur, an Indian Wild Ox, running on the deck in the rain. A Zebra swims past him when he tries to swim down to where his family is.
   Pi makes a small life raft out of a few oars lashed to a life buoy and several life jackets. The raft is also made up of several wooden boards that make it sturdier.
   Pi keeps the supplies of food and water in the hold on the Life raft and gets some when he needs it. He moves much of his supplies onto his small raft.
